    WpnofGod, instead of sending your thanks in a separate message, just click the Like button, please.

    The reason is that it is flagged as a new post, so we think you might have a follow-up question or something to add. Those of us with slow internet connections and/or old computers have to waste valuable time waiting for it to appear.

    So far, you've been lucky and received free answers. That is not the purpose of this forum. You should at the very least first make your own attempt at an answer. We may then feel able to comment.
